Pop-up shop to follow celebrity charity auction

By Katie Morley

A Liverpool-based charity will launch a pop-up shop after a celebrity clothes auction in October.

Dannii Minogue's dress was auctioned last year
The shop will be open for business for three hours only, excluding the half an hour in which the auction guests will have exclusive access to items including a Dannii Minogue dress.

Fundraising executive Rachel Donohoe said:

 “We had a capacity of 40 at last year’s Clothes Throw, and this year we’ve raised it to 140. We’re expecting to raise at least £16k this time.”

Alder Hey Imagine Appeal raised £3k from last year’s pop-up shop, with £8k being raised by the entire event.
